firefox 2.0 ftw
Just installed Firefox 2.0 RC 2 this week, and I've got to say that it's pretty keen. Doesn't seem like a revolution in browsers or anything, other than what it already was. But, everything seems tighter, quicker, slicker, and more like a polished product. My CPU usage is flatter than ever before, and it actually looks like I've got some free memory left over after running it for a few days. And this is speaking as an infovore who regularly has a dozen or so tabs open, with a turnover of at least a hundred a day. All the extensions I really care about still work, a few have been forced to work using Nightly Tester Tools. And, one that stopped working (SessionSaver) has now been rolled into the browser itself. Swank all around.
No Greasemonkey, No installey.
It's pretty slick otherwise. Seems spritely and a tad bit more svelt (I'm noting about 35-40% less memory hoggage.)
But had to revert when greasemonkey died.
